This also has now being fixed. I've tried the use of pt_BR
translations and everything seems to work fine.

Question: Minuet uses TiMidity++ and freepats as run-time
dependencies. Should I improve CMakeLists.txt to detect such
installations (they aren't libraries, maybe some ugly check is
required) as a way to hint packagers to add those as Minuet's
